    Here we see ex-LIRR #219 in MTA livery with a quick D&H stripe repaint to apply the logo as D&H #219

    Anyone know the history of this engine after August 1977?

    219 became Roberval & Saguenay #39. She was wrecked and scrapped in 1992. BTW, for the record, R&S owned LIRR 209 (33), 214 (34), 215 (35), 216 (36), 212 (37), 218 (38), 219 (39), 206 (40), 211 (41). R&S 34, 35, 37, 38, 39, are reported as cut up by R&S. 33, 36, 40, 41, all sold to Benoit Girard Metal Co. in 2000. Most are still listed on the company website, but I have been told they are all gone by now. I would love to be proven wrong.
